I will admit, if you collect a particular player, it helps to know where they are, even if they’re not available. There’s no sense in searching on a wild goose chase (still don’t know where that term comes from) for a jersey that you already know the location of. 

(Then you wait for that collector to get divorced and the jersey is yours.) 😉

I agree.  Also, this is pretty morbid, but I write down the names of people who ask me to "let me know when you decide to move this jersey" on my spreadsheet so that if I unexpectedly die, who ever is administering my estate can make the sale.  EDIT: less morbid, or in case I want the sale, I can remember who asked, and can reach out to make a sale

I do this too, and apparently, a lot of collectors are looking forward to my demise.

Samesies. I have my spreadsheet and my wife knows some random names in the hobby. However, I would not trust many people in the hobby to work with a surviving family member to properly sell off my jerseys.

I have a few I’d trust. A few of them would be willing, I bet. 

I don’t really have that type of collection anyway. She could just throw them up on eBay and probably get close to value just in the regular course of bidding. And the money received wouldn’t make a difference in anything anyway.

My spreadsheet has the price i paid and what I think it is worth / fair value (I update it every so often -- like now half of my islanders jerseys are worth even less, thanks JT, Okie, de Haan, Snow). 

 

Since I started including the FMV, I began to cut down on the impulse purchases that are immediately worthless. Still am good for a few, but it definitely makes you think twice before buying.

I wouldn't put out there that you have jersey wills.  I can imagine some collectors seeing/knowing about them and wishing some of you an early demise lol.

I’ve already decided on the two friends who get all my stuff. One is an old time friend of mine I grew up with, while the other is a collector on here from Fargo, ND...and we all know nothing crazy comes out of Fargo, ND.

I was honestly ready to go off on him, it would've been my last straw. He's easily taken over as the most annoying person in the hobby.

That’s why I blocked him and don’t see his s*** anymore.

Bruce C also added a post of his “Museum”’s Emery gameworn pads. I’m sure he had good intention, but flaunting your game used gear at a time like this seems tacky as hell.

He keeps deleting it and posting a new version of it in the group.

oh and I just also learned that asking $50+ for one of the free jerseys from the expo is being greedy.

I sold both of my jerseys over this past weekend for $60 shipped each.  I didn't exactly have to haggle either and both buyers were very happy with the prices.  Great hobby we are in; one minute people are saying items are worth what people are willing to pay for and the next minute you are a jerk for selling something at a price that is above what others think it is for.  Funny how they goes.

also did anyone see the screenshots Jake posted?  Someone signed him up on a LBGT mailing list as "Jake Kriek."  I have to admit that was pretty funny lol.

It was a free jersey, so obviously you should just give them away for free. Its the only fair way. 

Anyone holding a 58+ Devils should PM me for my address so they can send it to me for free. I'll cover shipping though, because I'm a gentleman.

The mailing list thing is hysterical. In high school we got a hold of a teacher's home address and mercilessly signed him up for magazines and catalogs for like two years. I am pretty sure he knew it was us, because every week he would update us as to whet he had received, sometimes even bringing them in. 

i guess he had a good enough sense of humor, but it must have been literally hundreds of catalogs and magazines. The catalogs he could just toss, but each magazine he'd have to cancel/return.

We were a-holes.
